To give these burgers a burst of bright flavor, you’ll cook rounds of red onion alongside the beef patties until they’re lightly charred, then layer it all on soft buns alongside a zesty lime mayo. An easy sweet and sour dressing and crunchy peanuts bring dynamic flavor and texture to our simple side salad.

Prepare the ingredients & make the lime mayo:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the lime mayo:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the onion and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch rounds, keeping the layers intact. Halve the buns. Zest the lime to get 1 teaspoon (if you don’t have a zester, use a peeler to remove the green rind of the lime, avoiding the white pith; mince the rind). Halve the lime crosswise. In a bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and the juice of 1 lime half; season with salt and pepper. 

Form the patties:
2 Form the patties:

Place the beef and curry paste in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Form the mixture into two 1/2-inch-thick patties. 

Cook the patties & onion:
3 Cook the patties & onion:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties and onion rounds in an even layer. Loosely cover the pan with foil. Cook 5 to 6 minutes per side (flipping carefully, as the oil may splatter), or until the onion rounds are lightly charred and softened and the patties are browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer the cooked patties and onion to a work surface. Drain off and discard any excess oil from the pan. 

Make the salad:
4 Make the salad:

Meanwhile, roughly chop the lettuce. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a large bowl, combine the sweet chili sauce, lime zest, and the juice of the remaining lime half; season with salt and pepper. Just before serving, add the chopped lettuce and peanuts to the bowl of dressing; toss to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Toast the buns & serve your dish:
5 Toast the buns & serve your dish:

Add the buns, cut side down, to the pan of reserved fond. Toast on medium-high 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface. Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, lime mayo, cooked patties, and as much of the cooked onion as you’d like (you may have extra). Serve the burgers with the salad on the side. Enjoy!
